    Default How engrossed are you in this game?

    I saw people willing to be lost just to catch Pokemons. Some spend their working time playing with this game and there are few who spend their entire days and nights for this game. I know that most games have addictive effects. How engrossed are you with Pokemon Go now? Does it brings more pros or cons in your life?

    I think I am but I have my limits. I do play while I am at work, when i have to walk I open the app so I can hatch those eggs. My kids and I go on walks so we can catch Pokmon and battle at the gym. I'm definitely not obsessed but it's a fun time when shared with others.

    I'm pretty into the game still. I work from home and when the work is done I walk for my health. The game is on when I'm walking. Later I ride my bike for the same reason and have the game open and in a pouch on the handlebars. When I hear a Pokeymon appear, I stop and capture him. Of course, eggs are hatching all the while. Most of my free time goes to playing the game because I spend most of my free time exercising so it just works out for me. I've not lost interest but see where there arent as many people at the pokestops as there used to be.

    This game is good for people who knows how to limit themselves from too much time spent from it. I'm not a virtual gamer but more on physical sport but I think I will enjoy it sometimes. Gotta try it also.

    i love this game as much as i love the show, but i don't see myself doing the extreme just to catch a pokemon. i'm sure there are safer ways to get them. also, i don't think it's worthy of real money to spend for in game items. i'd rather wait for whatever i can get for free rather than spend and be ahead of those who play normally.am i into the game? very much! but i limit myself to what is proper.

    Cool Re: How engrossed are you in this game?

    Im extremely engrossed in this game. I find it therapeutic. Ive been less sedentary since I started playing the game.

    Sometimes I feel a bit happier as soon as I start hearing the games music.

    However, I may have just found a shortcut:

    I play while husband is driving us places. Never have time to hangout by a gym to battle for more than 5 min. My whole family enjoys playing when we're out and about.

    Some guys in my class, play in class, during break times, after class. Its taking over lol!

    Once you catch all the Pokemon then things start to calm down a bit. But for now, its madness lol.

    Well in my opinion they are all "non pc-gamers" who only play games in their console or mobile phone. So nah im not impressed by this game. But i admit it has some fun it but not that much fun.
